Summary This documentary, narrated by veteran journalist Warren Olney, is the one-hour television special that revealed, step-by-step, the covert investigation that led to the bombshell discovery of evidence pointing to the installation of defeat devices in VW diesel cars to deliberately circumvent and avoid California and U.S. vehicle emissions standards on a scale never imagined. In 2008, Volkswagen executives proclaimed they would "dominate the auto industry by 2018, economically and environmentally." Now, those executives are dominating the news with admissions of guilt, and some are already behind bars. Climate change and the health of our planet were superseded by premeditated corporate greed and corruption
